← Francis Collins prays for Hitchens

Oh dear. There has been some research about the effectiveness of prayer that has shown that it can have an effect - negative. Presumably it's because if someone thinks you are praying for them they worry more about their condition.

So, Collins is promoting a potential harmful therapy. Not particularly ethical, I would think.
